Bolton's seven-match unbeaten run will face the ultimate test on Saturday, when they face Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Since losing eight successive games without scoring, Phil Parkinson's side have since racked up the division's longest sequence without defeat and could move out of the relegation zone with a shock victory in the Midlands at the weekend.

Mark Beevers will come back into contention for the game, having missed the midweek draw with Reading through suspension.

Reece Burke deputised against the Royals, a match in which he also netted his first goal since joining on loan from West Ham United, and the Trotters boss admitted he had a difficult decision to make in terms of who will partner David Wheater at the heart of the defence.

Andrew Taylor, Chris Taylor and Aaron Wilbraham aren't yet fit enough to feature, while checks will be made over the availability of both Antonee Robinson and Mark Little.

Karl Henry should feature against his former club, having represented Wolves between 2006 and 2013, whilst Adam Le Fondre, and the aforementioned Wheater and Little may also get the opportunity to line-up against their former sides.

Bolton Wanderers: from: Alnwick, Howard, Turner, Little, Dervite, Beevers, Robinson, Osede, Darby, Wheater, Burke, Vela, Karacan, Ameobi, Buckley, Noone, Cullen, Pratley, Morais, Henry, Le Fondre, Madine, Armstrong, Hall
